Steampunk Classic Collection 2

Hello, all! Time for the second release of Simply B Stamps for Memorial Day weekend! Now yesterday's release was cute and outdoorsy but today's is elegant and steamy! Today's release shows some of the fabulous stamps from the new Steampunk Classic Collection #2. You can see some creations made with these stamps over at Simply Challenged Challenges Blog.

This is the card I came up with for this release:

Today I Wish You A Day of Ordinary Miracles Card. I created this card using the Lavinia Outing stamp. The background was created with Echo Park's Victoria Gardens Collection of papers, some Petaloo flowers and flowers from Wild Orchids Crafts. The flourishes are from My Mind's Eye and I used some Distress Inks in Antique Linen, Old Paper, Worn Lipstick, and Evergreen Bough to distress the edges. I used the below Copics to color in the image.

Copics: B24, B32, E00, E11, N0, N4, RV02, RV21, RV23, RV34, Y06, Y11, Y15, YG03

Hey, Jude! Some News!

Hello, all! I've got some exciting news to share with you all today. I was chosen to join the Simply Challenged Design Team for Simply B Stamps! Make sure you check out the challenge blog and Simply B Stamps for some quirky, fun images and challenges!

Not only do I get to announce that I'm a part of a new DT today but I can also let you see a couple of creations I made with the new stamp release from the Outdoors Jude and the Rockers collection! To celebrate the new DT, Betty has not one but two new releases this weekend!

You Make the World Go Round Card. This little guy is Squeekin' Jude. I think he is so adorable with a squirrel perched on his hat. I created the card for the card challenge over at The papers are all from Echo Park's This and That Charming collection. I used the copics listed below to color this cutie in.

B39, B45, E11, E13, E18, E29, E31, E33, E35, E37, N0, N2, N4, RV13, Y02, Y06, YG67, YG91            

Adventure Card. This beauty is Which Way Brittany. When I saw her I KNEW she had to be a ginger. She's adorable with her little fawn. The papers are all from a Martha Stewart travel paper pack that I've had in my stash for years. I had to put her and her friend on an outdoorsy background. When I finished the card, there was something missing and so I decided to add some Liquid Pearl flourishes to create a breeze. I used copics to color Brittany and the fawn.

B00, B02, E00, E15, E18, G85, R20, RV13, RV34, YG67, YR04, YR07, YR61, YR68

I hope you enjoyed these cards and that you will take a look at the new Simply Challenged Blog. The first challenge will be on June 7 and weekly after that. Make sure you take a look at all the new releases as well!

Happy National Scrapbooking Day!

Hello, all! I just wanted to pop in and wish you a Happy National Scrapbooking Day! I've been working outside in my vegetable garden this morning but I've been checking in on the NSBD festivities over at How about you? I hope you have some scrappy fun in store for this weekend!

Also, I just finished moving all of my scrap room stuff into the garage, since my eldest daughter has taken her old room back. The good news about that is the garage seems to inspire me to create! Lol.

Wishing you all a wonderful day!
